Return to Fabric

I looked back at some of my earlier work this week. When I saw the pieces on silk that I produced last Easter I was reminded of the wonderful subtlety of the bleeding of the dyes into the fabric and the lustrous sheen the silk has.

Devore samples on silk mix fabric

I have been working so much on paper over the summer, I enjoyed a return to the versatility of fabric. I produced a few small samples incorporating folds and creases. This could be the inspirational kick-start I need to move on to more complete works.

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.
